Week twelve of the main slate at FanDuel has twelve games. There are several ways to go with this and it should be quite the interesting week. I had I difficult time this week narrowing the Wide Receiver position down to five players and here they are.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans ($7900) has a terrific matchup this week against a Seattle Seahawks defense allowing the WR1 to average 86.3 yards a game and as a unit 237 yards a game and just eight touchdowns this season. In five road games the Seahawks have allowed 1020 yards and five touchdowns this season. Evans has 65 receptions for 916 yards and eight touchdowns for a 17.4 FanDuel points per game average. Vegas set a 45 point over under with the Seahawks an early week six point favorite. The weather forecast is calling for a partly cloudy day with a nine mile per hour wind and hopefully Evans can light up the scoreboard a couple of times this week.
I’m sticking with this game and the Seahawks Doug Baldwin ($6800) has a very solid opportunity this week against a Buccaneers defense allowing the WR1 to average 66.3 yards a game and as a unit allows 267 yards and 20 touchdowns this season. In five home games this season the Bucs have allowed 1294 passing yards and seven touchdowns. Baldwin has 54 receptions for 733 yards and five touchdowns this season. The numbers might not be the sexiest but I have a feeling Baldwin is going to shred that defense on Sunday.
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry ($7000) has a great opportunity against a San Francisco 49ers defense allowing the WR1 to average 90.7 yards a game and as a unit have allowed 251.6 yards a game and 23 touchdowns this season. In four road games this season the 49ers have allowed 1330 passing yards and 14 touchdowns. Landry has 60 receptions this season for 686 yards and only two touchdowns and six Red Zone target catching four of them for one touchdown. Vegas set the over under at 46.5 points with the home team Dolphins an early week eight point favorite. The winds will be blowing at about 13 miles per hour but I like this matchup and I think Landry will fly under the radar this week.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins ($7000) has a good opportunity against a San Diego Chargers defense allowing the WR1 to average 82.2 yards a game and as a unit 274.5 passing yards a game and 16 touchdowns this season. In five road games this season the Chargers have allowed 1290 yards and ten touchdowns this season. This season Hopkins has 50 receptions for 540 yards and three touchdowns for a 9.7 FanDuel points per game average. Vegas set the over under at 45.5 points and the Chargers are an early week one point road favorite. The weather should not affect play and I like Hopkins this week.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper ($7800) has a great opportunity this week against a Carolina Panthers defense allowing the WR1 to average 83.4 yards a game and as a unit have allowed 271.7 yards and 19 touchdowns this season. In four road games this season the Panthers have allowed 1328 yards and nine touchdowns. Cooper has 62 receptions this season for 900 yards and three touchdowns plus 12 Red Zone targets only catching four of them and all that is good for a 14.3 FanDuel points per game average. Vegas set the over under at 50.5 with the home team Raiders an early week three point favorite. The weather should be good and hopefully so will Cooper against the Panthers this Sunday!
Good luck at FanDuel!
